Today Mark T and myself went to Elton and Orston railway station, which is the least used station in Nottinghamshire. To watch the one of the Summer Saturday HST specials to Skegness.
WOW! Where has the time gone? Three years ago today, Nick and myself climbed Ben Nevis, which is of course, the highest mountain in the British Isles! Standing at 1,345 metres above sea level. Still can’t believe that we both did it!!

Happy days! At long, long last, I’ve got my Specialized Crosstrail Sport Disc ’16 bike fixed and fully serviced! I broke one of the cranks, way back in July of last year! So just need to put a new pedal on him and he’s good to go!!
It also needed, two new break pads, bottom bracket and a very good wash!
That’s me back outside wearing the Regulation Rubber Bike Mask! Now that face coverings are to become compulsory in England’s shops from 24 July. I could well, end up wearing this much more often!!

Happy days! Just back in from my second 40+ mile cycle of 2020! Well in fact, my longest cycle of the year, I did 43.68 miles. Which I’am more than pleased with! Next goal is to do 50 miles, so I can say I’ve done my first half century ride of the year.
Only bad thing about the cycle, was getting my first puncture of the year! Took me like 30 minutes, just getting the tire off the wheel! It was like, it had been glued on! Which of course, it wasn’t! Just not the tire off, in well over a year! Just so glad it was the front tire.
